[movies]David Binkley Memorial Lecture:Embodied Histories & The Weight of Data - Jer Thorp

[movies]Opening Keynote: From Access to Interactivity - Jon Beasley-Murray
The issue of "access" is in the first place about providing the public with the goods generated by public institutions. This should be obvious: universities exist for the public good, and the knowledge and skills that they develop should be immediately available to the public. With the rise of digitalization, the Internet, and the various technical capabilities for almost unlimited reproduction and dissemination of information, this should be the heyday of the university as an organization orien...

In the last twenty years collecting institutions have heeded the calls of Indigenous activists to integrate Indigenous curatorial models and knowledge systems into mainstream museum and archive practices. Web 2.0 technologies grounded in user-generated content and bottom-up exhibition and display modes have aided in producing a dynamic platform for sharing materials. This newly animated digital terrain, however, poses both possibilities and problems for Indigenous peoples as they seek to manage,...

[movies]Big Data in Libraries: Has Open Source's Time Arrived? - MJ Suhonos, Peter Van Garderen
Libraries and consortia have a long history of managing millions of resources by their very nature. However, administering and maintaining such vast quantities of data has generally remained a task that was only achievable by large software vendors and research cooperatives that could afford the systems to do so. At the same time, technology has advanced exponentially in the past few decades while the nature and complexity of library metadata has remained relatively unchanged...
